Drakengard 3 soars in Japan this October

PS3-exclusive sequel to dragon-themed action game series to also come in 10th Anniversary box set; no North American and European plans as of yet.

Square Enix has announced that the PS3 action game Drakengard 3 will be out in Japan on October 31.

The special Drakengard 3 10th Anniversary box set artwork, featuring the protagonists of the entire Drakengard series.

The game will be sold in a regular edition and a Drakengard 3 10th Anniversary box set via Square Enix's e-store. In addition to the game, the set will contain a book called Drakengard: World Inside, a music CD called Drakengard Chips Music that features 24 tracks from the Drakengard and Nier games remixed in an 8-bit style, and a Blu-ray disc called Drakengard History Films that contains cutscenes, trailers, and commercials for the Drakengard titles.

The box set also contains an art book, a Drakengard 3 DLC code, and a novella that acts as a prequel to Drakengard 3. Square Enix has yet to announce plans for a North American and European release.

Drakengard 3 is an action game that mixes ground-based combat and air combat using dragons. Players control two sisters named Zero and One who wield the power of the ancient Utautai goddesses. The former wishes to kill the remaining Utautai for reasons unknown, while the latter wants to bring peace and stability to the world.

I still really hope this game gets localized.  I wonder if GS would still keep us up-to-date on it?

I would buy Drakengard 3 in a heart beat. I hope it will follow the first game's mature,  psychopathic feel instead of the mopey, watered-down story of the 2nd game.

I'm sad that Nier, as one of my most favourite game of all time, sold poorly. I hope that doesn't hold square enix (or any publisher) to localized the game.


I wish they put Drakengard 1 & 2 on PSN Store. Or even better, make Drakengard HD Collection.

This game needs to be localized!  Drakengard has been missing from the PS3.

If we want more games to get localized , then we have to stop bashing SE first and Japanese in general  XD (like the change of hearts with Agito, the bashing SE suffered from after the release of XIII can we blame them? ) just saying

@matastig It's their fault for making 13, isn't it.

Anyways, I'd love to play Drakengard 3. I enjoyed both previous installemnts.
